Your Wedding Soundtrack (ceremony edition)

Music can make or break a wedding day! Music can literally be the magic during the ceremony and the energy at the reception! Think about your music selections and your entertainers, they together can paint a memory that you won't soon forget!

Song selections that you should begin to think about RIGHT NOW!

As your guest enter the ceremony it's a nice touch to have music selections playing softly to quiet the silence. When it's time to start, it's nice for someone to say Welcome, silence cell phones and take their seat for the program that's about to begin.

Honoree Entrance

A song for the honorees to walk in on. This can be your grandparents, godparents, aunts, uncles and parents. Anyone that you feel has a special place in your life and you want to honor them during the ceremony in a sweet but public way.

My favorite song for this is: "I Found Love" by BeBe & CeCe Winans

Groom Entrance

Your Officiant, Groom and Best Man will enter after the honorees. You can pick a song for this, but it's a quick transition. I usually advise my couples to use the same song as above or the same song as the Bridal Party procession which is next.

Bridal Party Procession

Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, Ringer Bearer, Flower Girl and anyone else in the wedding.

Keep in mind that this song will probably play for several minutes depending on the number of attendants walking down the aisle and the length of the aisle. I personally love a classical selection here.

My favorite song for this is: "Canon In D" by Pachelbel. There are various variations. In my opinion the more instruments the better. My favorite non classical selection is "After All Is Said And Done" Beyonce & Marc Nelson
